The members love the Helix – one of the most popular toys in here. For the women especially, they love it – it’s an outstanding machine. It provides them with an amazing leg/glut workout and of course they get their cardio up, but the women are really focused on the legs and gluts – it’s amazing watching them on the machines, they invent their own workout variations – getting down low, standing on their tip-toes, deep squats, tuning their knees out, working their thighs, they’re on there to fire their quads.
If I had more room I’d bring in 2-3 more machines because it’s so functional, there’s so much you can do with it. We’ve created some exercises with it using little 3-4 pound medicine balls so that folks are getting some upper body movement with it too. It definitely is very popular with both our members and trainers and a big plus for the club.
